Friday night's much-anticipated battle for Harford County lacrosse supremacy turned into a one man-show. Fallston's Andy Thrasher set school records for most goals scored in a game and most career goals as the visiting and No. 11 Cougars (9-3) routed 12th-ranked Bel Air (10-2), 21-6, in a battle of county unbeatens. Thrasher scored nine goals to break a school record held by Matt Wade in 2002. He also broke the record for career goals at Fallston with 170. The old record of 166 was set by Matt Bosse in 2001.

Fallston boys lacrosse coach Ryan Arist said he knew Andy Thrasher would be a good player. But he never expected 47 goals and six assists from a ninth-grader. Thrasher became a big part of an already potent Fallston offense, finishing second in the regular season in scoring behind Luke Raab, who passed him at the end. The freshman has a blistering left-handed shot that he doesn't mind firing in traffic, and he knows how to get open. He also played on the junior varsity football team as a running back and cornerback.

North Harford seniors Dean Thrasher, Steve Galbreath and Mark Parks were speechless after the Hawks' overtime loss to Mount Hebron in the Class 3A boys lacrosse state semifinals last week. It was a difficult end to an otherwise fulfilling season. It was also the seniors' last chance to go out on top. "Everybody was real quiet after that game," said Galbreath, a midfielder. "Any other year, winning a regional title would be huge, but we expected to go the whole way. It kind of hurt." A week after their hopes for the school's third state championship fell short, the three friends and teammates gathered and reminisced about what was and what could have been.

ATLANTA - - The Washington Capitals wasted little time Saturday taking advantage of an Atlanta Thrashers team that is struggling on the ice and dealing with distractions off it. Mike Knuble and Alexander Semin each scored twice to lead an offensive onslaught in which the Capitals scored four times on their first nine shots at Philips Arena before cruising to an 8-1 victory. Nicklas Backstrom, David Steckel, Tom Poti and Jason Chimera also tallied, while Michal Neuvirth made 38 saves to help the Capitals open a pivotal three-game Southeast Division swing with their third straight win overall, fifth in a row over the Thrashers and ninth in 10 division contests this season.

Talks between the Thrashers and their franchise player, Ilya Kovalchuk, on a contract extension have hit a "snag," according to Thrashers general manager Don Waddell . "Their position is fixed years with money and we have a different side of that," Waddell told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The Thrashers are hoping to sign Kovalchuk to a long-term contract. He is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. Waddell said negotiations with Jay Grossman , Kovalchuk's agent, would resume after the holidays.

ATLANTA - -The Washington Capitals won their sixth game in a row and earned two points on the road against a Southeast Division opponent Thursday night. But you wouldn't have known it after seeing the scowl on coach Bruce Boudreau's face as he emerged from the visitors' dressing room, his hands stuffed in his pockets. Boudreau had just watched his team build a three-goal lead against the Atlanta Thrashers, let up late in the second period, then hang on for a frantic 4-3 victory that got much too close for comfort.

ATLANTA - -The Washington Capitals needed a lift on offense with Alexander Semin sidelined, and they got it from the most unlikely of sources Thursday night. Low-scoring defenseman Jeff Schultz notched three points at Philips Arena, including a goal from 150 feet out, and three others scored their first goals of the season to lead the Capitals to a sloppy 5-4 victory over the Atlanta Thrashers. Washington chased previously hot goaltender Ondrej Pavelec from the net with three goals on four shots, all in the span of 1:28.

It came on a man-advantage, as did Washington's first two goals, which came 53 seconds apart in the first period.

Brown gave him a five-year suspended sentence and three years' probation for the brutal beating of a woman during a drug arrest last February.Before imposing the sentence, the judge said he had to weigh, among other factors, the "potential brutality" a former policeman faces in prison.
